On Thursday, December 8, we were able to give back to three Transcona groups this year thanks to all your financial support! Siloam Mission, Transcona Food bank, and Transcona Railer Express were our gracious recipients.
Transcona Rotary members will once again be supporting the Salvation Army with our annual Salvation Army Christmas Kettle campaign. Come see us at Kildonan Place Shopping Centre on December 10th from 10:00 to 6:00.
We will be in front of Koya Japan in the Food Court – closest entrance is by Dollarama.
If you have any questions about the campaign, you can find most of your answers here:
Congratulations to all our winners this year!
By purchasing your Grey Cup raffle tickets from one of our members, you helped us support organizations like the Transcona Food Bank and Siloam Mission, just in time for Christmas. We are also able to continue providing a scholarship for the Transcona Railer Express, a junior hockey team playing in the MMJHL.
Thank you for supporting the Rotary Club of Transcona!
On November 10, 2022, we were pleasently surprised with a few guest speakers at our meeting. They presented what ANCOP is and how it has made such a great difference in so many lives.
Our Rotary club donated in the past to this cause - seeing this presentation is a nice tangible way of seeing where some of your donations go and the fruits they can bear.

Our club recently agreed to help out refugees in Ukraine who are fleeing to Poland by donating to ShelterBox Canada, which is part of Rotary International. So far we have enough for 4 shelter boxes ($1,200 each).
ShelterBox is an international disaster relief organization that hand-delivers aid to families devastated by conflict or natural disaster, to give them safe shelter and the tools to rebuild communities.
To help us even further with this campaign, a club member has graciously agreed to match up to $10,000 that our club is able to raise!
If you are interested in donating, please contact Dr. David Marsh (you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for contact info).
Thank you for your support!
After much hard work, we have released our promotion video explaining who we are, what we do, both locally and globally.

Monday, July 26th we met with the dedicated team from Transcona Museum, to assist in their fundraising efforts to SAVE 2747. Through fundraising efforts the club was able to donate $20,000 to the project of building a roofed structure to keep 2747 safe from the elements!!
A brief explanation of the significance: CN 2747 is an artifact of significant historical importance not only to the community of Transcona but to Canada. It was the first steam locomotive constructed at the Transcona Shops and the first built in Western Canada in April 1926. After 34 years of service, CN 2747 was retired and placed on permanent, outdoor display in 1960. For more information, visit https://www.transconamuseum.mb.ca/cn-2747-preservation-project
